What the hell is wrong with people?

The shit is really hitting the fan in Philadelphia, and many are out for blood. Yesterday, a Philadelphia police officer was shot in the head when he walked into a store where a robbery was in progress. Today, he died.

As of October I have been living in the “country” for nine years. There are many times when I miss the big city life. I miss the hustle and bustle. I miss the convenience. But with all of the crime going on in Philadelphia, especially the numerous shootings and killings, I’m glad I’m where I’m at, especially for the sake of Alyssa and Ryan. I may have to drive five miles to get to a convenience store, or ten miles to go to Target, or sixteen to get to the closest hospital (that was so much fun when I was in labor with Alyssa!), but at least I’ll live to tell others about what I bought or what was wrong with me.

Besides, when I think of the big city life and how much I miss it, memories of Pittsburgh come to mind, rather than memories of Philadelphia.

    I currently live in Philadelphia and the crime was an issue for me at first but honestly I started to realize that there’s crime, violence, etc EVERYWHERE so I’ll never be able to avoid it.

    I’m currently happy in West Philadlphia, lol

    I’m glad I live in a smaller city, and not in the country or a big city. It’s much easier. I still live almost as far from a Target as you do, but it’s nice.

    Yeah I’m pretty much content with the whole small town living but being close to the big city. There are just so many freaky things going on in the big cities. If you have kids you have to want this type of life for their sake.

    My Dad and I had this topic of discussion earlier. It’s such a shame what happened to his man. He was just about to retire from duty, and this happens.

    I’m about 45 min – 1 hr from Philly. However, I try to avoid it at all costs. It’s not not my type of environment. I’m already pretty errie, about the fact that I’m going to be up at the airport, since I’m traveling.

    I’m much happier, and feel a lot safer living in the suburbs. For the most part, it’s a lot more quiet — sometimes.
